    Interesting. I'm VERY intrigued at what they're planning.

    EDIT: I note it says "Let the games begin!" Could this be Transformers Olympics, or a Games of Decepticon continuation or something?

    I'm thinking it has to be the Wreckers, possibly in SG or Animated (since both of those are newer timelines, but both familiar in different ways)

    Hm, interesting.

    Though "never before featured in G1" has me very unexcited.

    EDIT: Ah, I see that they've clarified the original statement regarding G1 with "in this way" at the end. That makes it completely different. Prior to that, it sounded as if these wouldn't be G1 characters at all which would have certainly limited things with the 25th anniversary this year.

    "Let the games begin!" is probably Brian just saying "let the rumor mill start!". We'll see.

    I read that as "recently created", instead of "never existed before". But now that you point it out, that seems more like what he meant.

    I bet it's the cast of TF:Animated, only done in Non-Animated molds. Like they could repaint Cybertron Ransack in Prowl's colours and give him a new head...

    Interesting, very interesting. I have absolutely no idea what that means yet. Maybe something Movie related? (like the story and characters, not the toy molds).

    Now I'm thinking I was wrong - they were featured in the Marvel G1 comics, but when I originally read it I was thinking cartoon. If it's a team that was never in G1 cartoon or comics, then I have no idea hehe.

    Transforming versions of Action Master characters?

    I'm kidding, by the way. They'll use popular characters people actually know but in a new context, as usual.

    I think you may be right... either that or its TFA molds repainted into characters from another series (none of them namesakes og G1 guys)... Maybe BW characters??? The Rdicons have already started exploring that ...

    Prime = Primal
    Grimlock = Dinobot
    Bulkhead = Rhinox
    Bumblebee = Cheetor
    Prowl = Rattrap
